Just in time for the scariest holiday of the year, the terrifying Xbox Game Pass game, "Amnesia: The Bunker", is receiving its much-anticipated Halloween update. The horror video game, developed by Frictional, made its remarkable comeback this summer, much to the delight of thrill-seeking gamers. Now, as we approach the end of October, this frightful Game Pass adventure is getting a plethora of eerie updates, introducing a whole new terror level to the game's already spine-chilling atmosphere.
Among the main updated features are the 'Shell Shock' difficulty mode and the 'Custom' mode. Shell Shock will considerably enhance the intensity of gameplay, pushing players to their limits and testing their survival skills. Meanwhile, the Custom model offers gamers the freedom to alter their game experience to their liking.
Another thrilling new feature is the Stalker behaviors that increase unpredictability. This will keep players on their toes as their stalker may attack at any moment, by surprise. Similarly, the implementation of the Sublevel Fuse System will further contribute to the tension. This system allows for the restoration of electricity and the activation of lights in different zones of the Bunker, slowing down the Stalker's progress and adding a unique touch of suspenseful strategy.
A few more major updates include a Hardcore Health System where players only lose health while bleeding, improved Randomization, where lockers and their combinations are scattered randomly, and Randomized Corpse Locations, where the position of corpses would attract menacing rats that could block hallways. The update also introduces the challenging situation where saving progress requires the use of valuable fuel supplies.
The Halloween update won't be complete without a spooky twist to resources and locations. The formerly already difficult-to-access Fuel Storage Room has now been locked away, along with its unlimited supply of fuel. The combination to unlock it is hidden cryptically within the Bunker. The same goes for the previously readily available Revolver, which is currently locked away in a storage locker.
Adding new challenges and surprises, the once safe Admin Room — with lockable metal doors— is no longer out of the Stalker's reach. Thus, nowhere within the bunker is entirely safe now, raising the stakes even higher.
Lastly, the new ‘Training Grounds’ level has been designed to help both new and established gamers improve their skills, and introduces even more excitement to the gaming experience.
Embedded within the article is a Halloween update trailer where you can preview all these intriguing and frightful new features.
